"Doxing/doxxing" - scary stuff

Came across this expression for first time, looked it up, something like it was mentioned by a few people in another thread here recently. Sorry about the implicit ad, but if you ignore that, it's a good article.

* "Coronavirus vaccine innovator suggests return to normal by ‘winter next year'*

One of the scientists behind the first Covid-19 vaccine to clear interim clinical trials has said the impact of the jab will kick in next summer, and normality should return by next winter.

Professor Ugur Sahin, chief executive of BioNTech, said it was “absolutely essential” to have a high vaccination rate before autumn next year to ensure a return to normal life next winter.

He acknowledged that the next few months will be “hard” and that the promising preliminary results on the vaccine, created in partnership with Pfizer, will not have an impact on infection numbers in the current wave.

Interim results from the jab were found to be more than 90% effective, the two firms announced last week, but safety and additional efficacy data continue to be collected.
“If everything continues to go well, we will start to deliver the vaccine end of this year, beginning next year,” Prof Sahin told the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show.

“Our goal is to deliver more than 300 million of vaccine doses until April next year, which could allow us to already start to make an impact. "

Wonderful docu on The Queen Mary just finished on BBC4 (rpt)

Her origins on the Clyde & various roles, incl transporting Jewish refugees from Germany & Austria to New York in the late 1930s. Particularly moving was the story of how Commander Robert Irving, one of her captains, held up her sailing for 6 hours at the request of one particular refugee family, the Katzensteins, who were on a train heading to board her at Cherbourg but who were held up when some Gestapo officers boarded the train and stated their papers weren't in order. Ludwig Katzenstein, then age 4, recounted how his father made his way to the front of the train & personally asked the driver to telegraph the ship, which he did - and unbelievably, Cdr Irving did wait for them. Ludwig recounting how it felt to see the Statue of Liberty as they got into New York harbour was something else - "miracles do happen".

Followed by a Timeshift docu 'The Men who built the Liners' - just about to get onto iPlayer - superb stuff.
